CJF,
Both rifles are very nice, and you can be proud of them. I remember your quest for scope mounts, you were very lucky to have found some; I hope you are able to have an appropriate scope fitted. I wouldn't be as eager to use a "period" scope as one with clear optics and a useable reticle. I am a little concerned about the Lapua bullets you have ordered. Their products are very high quality, that is not my concern at all. I just believe those bullets would be more appropriate for 9.3x57-9.3x62- 9.3x74R-9.3x64 class cartridges. The Tesco style bullets currently loaded in factory 9.3x72R ammo are made to be safe for use in barrels of different groove diameters. Buffalo Arms has a bullet for 9.3x72R that seems to have been formed from 200 grain 35 Rem. bullets, therefore would be appropriate for the 9.3x72R velocity. In rifles with .358" barrels, the 35 Rem. bullets would work as they are, the new "Flex Tip" bullets should be great.

Themauserkid,
The part of the above concerning bullets may apply to your rifle, depending on the groove diameter. The Tesco style bullets mentioned above would be useable in about all 9.3x72R rifles and are still made (I believe) by RWS, Norma, and Sellier& Bellot. They may be difficult to find, but that is expected when working with these rifles. It was recently announced that an American company has bought Sellier& Bellot, which would likely make their products more easily available. Also, cast bullets are a good choice for regular use, considering the current cost of most bullets. It is important that proof marks for both rifles be posted. Rifles of this quality were possibly (maybe probably) "express proofed", which could be important because double rifles are more difficult to find a load for, that the bullets impact together.

Der Ami,

Is your concern about the Lapua bullets about their weight, diameter or jacket toughness/thickness? These are 185grain. These are currently in stock at Grafs.com. https://www.grafs.com/retail/catalog/product/productId/87370


I know PPU makes a heavier bullet that's too much for these rifles (280gr?).

CJF,
I was concerned about all three, but truthfully, I didn't check the bullet and didn't know it was only 185 grains. I thought it would have been 286 grains, which is more or less the standard weight for 9.3x62 and 9.3x74R. When I called up your link, I noted the bullet is intended for the 9.3x62, as a lighter bullet choice for smaller animals. I believe the PPU bullet is .366" dia. and 286gr., it is intended for the 9.3x62 which they also sell. If you also shoot one of the more powerful 9.3s, the PPU bullet is a pretty good buy. Your 9.3x72R is your rifle, not mine, and you can use whatever bullet you want. You and Themauserkid reported tight barrels, but neither showed proof marks or groove diameter. Accordingly, I recommended the Tesco style jacketed bullet or cast bullets, but if the groove diameter is .358-.359" I can recommend 35 Rem. bullets. You might ask Lapua what they think about using the 185-gr. bullet in a 9.3x72R. Their advice is more authoritative than mine and I would be interested in theirs, myself. BTW, if you disregard my advice, it won't hurt my feelings, other people disregard it.

Hi Mike,

I appreciate the advice. Always.


The PPU bullet is indeed 286gr. I need to get a dedicated thread going on the 9.3x72r double and will do so after I update photos and recast the bore. Same for my 360EX Watson double and a single Alex Henry falling block (the later two in 360BPE 2.25") It looks like at least some rifle bullets are starting to come back in stock. For the longest time I was getting great advice on what I could use, but no one had it.

Depending on how tight the bore is, I might try these: https://www.grafs.com/retail/catalog/product/productId/17297

Regards,
Chris

Interesting adornment, possibly Herberg engraving.

Thank you Raimey!

Yes, I like the flip up sights, I have a Meffert with this feature as well. There is also a small aperture in the tang, I didn’t get a good shot of that. The two round trap was neat to me, I’m used to seeing larger cartridge traps.

Raimey,
In the past I too have read both in regards to the K, it sounds like more research is in order. Do you believe “SS” is the assembler of the barrel set seeing as it is positioned on the rib? Thank you for your assistance.
